From the Amazon Mechanical Turk official blog:


Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is fortunate to be powered by a large and diverse group of Worker customers who are passionate about helping Requesters get great results from crowdsourcing.

To help new Requesters get started successfully with MTurk, a community of Worker customers have authored a set of guidelines. Although they are primarily written for Academic Requesters performing research using MTurk, all Requesters may find several of the topics helpful.

The full guide can be found here: http://www.wearedynamo.org/Guidelines_for_Academic_Requesters.pdf

We have a post about these guidelines here: http://www.mturkcrowd.com/threads/guidelines-for-academic-requesters-wearedynamo-org-wiki.14/

I'm somewhat amazed that mturk is acknowledging the worker world in any way at all. That mturk blog actually has some interesting and useful stuff on it though. This: blog.mturk.com. And I found a link there to the official requester forum. It isn't so active but there is some interesting stuff: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/forum.jspa?forumID=11. I like the "Holy sh*t my survey is completely screwed up why didn't anyone tell me?" posts. They're interesting at least. I feel some empathy.
